An annual 3-day working meeting for teachers, advisors and academics in
Registrations for IMP14 in 2015 will open in November. There are only 21
applets which make use of learners’ natural powers to
and appreciate mathematical structure through generalising for
series of explorations
in algebra with commentaries which draw upon mathematical powers,
and pedagogical choices to illustrate the fact that any task can be
seen as merely one example for a rich domain of similar tasks, and
putting forward the view that a task which does not permit and
encourage learners to use their own powers, to encounter core
mathematical themes, is not a pedagogically effective task.
A collection of mathematical problems together with
notes on explorations they have triggered.
in Mathematical Texts
of how, historically,
authors have indicated their awareness of generality, whether
explicitly, through the variety of worked examples, or through
structure in the exercises. Of particular interest is the use
in books on the border between arithmetic and algebra over the
multi-faceted project to collect and organise constructs, frameworks
and strategies which are useful when teaching.
